Time to Make UN Peacekeeping More Effective? Use Data to Deliver the Results!
Having a clear and comprehensive picture of threats enables peacekeeping missions to achieve their mandated goals, including the protection of civilians. It is therefore imperative that mission leaders use threat analysis in their strategic and operational planning systems and for personnel to take decisive and proactive action based on early warning information.
Most recently, CIVIC’s Peacekeeping Program published a report titled: “Data-driven Protection: Linking Threat Analysis to Planning in UN Peacekeeping Operations”, authored by Lauren Spink, senior researcher at CIVIC. The report reviews a number of challenges that the peacekeeping missions in South Sudan and the DRC face, achieving strong situational awareness and ensuring threat analysis forms the basis of integrated planning. The report also highlights innovative strategies the missions are using to overcome obstacles to achieving strong cycles of information collection, storage, analysis, and planning.
At this event, the report’s findings and recommendations for international actors involved in or supporting peacekeeping missions will be shared and discussed with seminar participants with a view to generate greater awareness of the complexities, but also and in particular, possible solutions that can be harnessed and promulgated across institutions and organisations
This panel discussion will be followed by an interactive session with the floor.
Light snacks and drinks will be served.
